I’m pushing it today by including this panel. Details after the jump.

So, yes, I’m in two minds about this. On the one hand, I’m not sure I should be including imaginary instances of tropes. Here, Johnny imagines how he might use his powers to restrain the not-so-good Doctor Doom. On the other hand, he clearly believes that he can carve a moat around an island and fill it with everlasting flame to keep Doom confined to his (presumably asbestos) tent.

Whilst Johnny’s stupidity isn’t a subject of this blog (we’d be here forever if it was), his lack of sense when it comes to his powers arguably is, hence this panel’s inclusion.

Check out our coverage of Fantastic Four #10 on our eighth episode: Don! Don! Don! Don-Don-Don! Don-Don-Don!

And check back with us tomorrow for the launch of our first ever competition!
